I don't remember cell phones being rampant in the early 90s.

Did someone just have a bad experience once and is filling in the scenery over time? Come on, rast, you know you wanna dance.

I did have one experience, during 1984 or 5 I believe, when the music just got my groove bone a-twichin' and I had to dance, and some girl with a sweater tied around her neck yelled at me to sit down. I was pretty far removed, mentally, from where she was so I actually SAT DOWN. Then a few minutes later I just had to dance. So I boogied for about 10 seconds, turned around and gave her a great big smile and never looked back again.

all I know, at least in the SFBay area in the 70's, there would be most of the people dancin & spinning near the elevated stage, but elsewhere it was people sitting on their blankets and not blocking peoples view. My bitch is with the ton's of people who somehow for whatever reason, would stand for the whole show and/or spillin beer.
The Dead shows were hijacked by a lot of Montrose type rockers...(not that there was anything wrong with Montrose)
Saw them a few times. There, standing was the thing. Though I sat alot anyway.
If you were on the lawn at the Shoreline during The Eagles concert 6/9/94- and heard 3people in unison shouting "SIT DOWN!!" I was one of 'em. know what? They sat down.
At least where I could see/enjoy some of the show. Obnoxious? i suppose.
I mean, for some unknown reason-to me. Some just stood all the time like expectant dawgs. Oooooooow! The band! oooooooow-I gotta stand and drool- good grief! RELAX and enjoy the music! I did'nt pay to see some sorry ass standing in front of my line of vision being self-centered and selfish. Yeah, SIT DOWN! (even said please)
